New headteacher appointed at St John Plessington Catholic College

St John Plessington Catholic College, part of the Holy Family Catholic

Multi Academy Trust (HFCMAT), has appointed a new headteacher.

With almost 15 years of teaching experience, and 13 of those being at St John Plessington Peadar McLoughlin is thrilled with the role.

In 2007, Peadar moved to Liverpool to undertake a PGCE in ICT. After this, he taught at Notre Dame Catholic College for 15 months before beginning his role as an ICT teacher and website manager at St John Plessington in January 2010.

As headteacher, Peadar is looking forward to raising standards and outcomes to ensure students gain a firstclass education with gospel values.

Peadar said: “I want to create more opportunities inside and outside the classroom, including developing further links in our local community and parishes, and supporting growth within the school through maintaining our inclusive community.

“As I have been through the Catholic education system myself, I feel privileged and honoured to have the opportunity to provide that same highquality Catholic education for students at our school.”

Whilst interim headteacher, Peadar has already worked hard to enhance the experience at St John Plessington supporting the implementation of an enrichment programme for all students.

“In regard to our next plans, I am looking across all aspects of the school, such as the continued development of our junior leadership team, opportunities for international travel and experiences, and ensuring the highest standards across all areas,” Peadar said.

Andy Moor, CEO of HFCMAT, commented: “We are thrilled to appoint Peadar as headteacher at St John Plessington Catholic College. He is a valued member of the Holy Family Catholic Multi Academy Trust, and our team is looking forward to working with him in his new role. Peadar’s experience and ambition for the whole school and trust community is central to his continued success.”
